Doctor Who online fiction

The War of Art was a short story written by Paul Cornell. It was a reward for winning Amy's History Hunt, a special online game. It was based on events the Doctor encounters during the events of the game and was presented in PDF format.

Summary Edit

The Doctor leaves his favourite painting in an art gallery. He returns to find it, but he is not the only one that wants it.

Characters Edit

References Edit

This is a paradox as the Doctor only chose the sculpture because he knew the Arucha would leave it there.

Story notes Edit

  • The title is a play on the cult book The Art of War by Sun Tzu. The book offers guidelines for warfare in ancient China.
